Welcome to LPD!


Mark your calendars: ANNUAL KICKOFF: Saturday, September 21. 

Tri-Valley Innovation Fair Re-cap

  • When: Saturday, April 13 – 10am to 5pm
  • Where: Alameda County Fairgrounds, Pleasanton

The Tri-Valley Innovation Fair  was once again a fun and inspiring day! This year we started with Nitu Shinde’s advice on several experiments (tested and approved by her
children). The selected experiments were easy and fun and illustrated some basic scientific principles. AAUW’s table was the first one as folks entered the room. We had lots of kids stop by ready to play and learn. The principle of magnetic attraction was demonstrated by magnetic “cars” that could push and pull on each other. A “how to” on making pinwheels demonstrated aerodynamics. Naomi Siu ran the fingerprinting operation. Thanks also to Carol Kinnard, Maria Kennedy, Pam Leong, and Lara Wiedemeier for their help in making the day a success.


Holiday Event raises over $1000 for Tri-Valley Haven!

On Thursday December 7, 2023 we again celebrated the holidays together at Terra Mia, in Livermore.  The giving tree raised over $1,000 for Tri-Valley Haven, and that is a donation we were thrilled to provide! Our wonderful, creative gift baskets raised $400 specifically for AAUW girl programs. From our board to our extended membership, we thank you for being part of this year’s effort to empower women and to give others a boost.

Learn about AI—What is it? Where is it?

Artificial Intelligence is in the news, on TV, everywhere!  About 20 branch members gathered on October 19 to hear a panel presentation about Artificial Intelligence and its potential impact on our lives. Branch members Laurene Green-Horner, P.J. Wells, Marilyn Duman, Roz Wright, and Naomi Siu presented their research on AI definitions and its impact in health care, education, and deep fakes.  Stay tuned for future programs on this topic.

We held our Fall kick-off on Saturday, September 23.

We heard from the 2023 Teck Trek attendees and Scholarship winners – such an amazing group.  We signed up new participants for our wide variety of interest groups – various book, discussion, bridge and eating out groups.


Our 2023 virtual career presentations were held earlier this year.  Links to recordings here.


The Livermore-Pleasanton-Dublin Branch of AAUW, is one of over 1000 branches nationwide, representing more than 100,000 members who seek personal lifelong development and advocate social change and public policy consistent with gender equity.

Executive board meetings are held monthly on the first Wednesday and are open to all members. A monthly newsletter, The Grapevine, is sent to all the members and informs them of the monthly program, interest group meetings, and other activities.

Funds are raised during the year for Scholarships, the AAUW Fund, and for Tech Trek – a one-week summer camp at local Universities.

Membership –  Your AAUW branch membership has been vital in helping advance gender and racial equity during this challenging time. The pandemic has been particularly devastating for women and people of color, but with your support we’ve pushed for much-needed COVID relief and paid-leave benefits, expanded voting access and education, and published important research on student debt and the power gap in colleges and universities. We rely on members like you to help us meet the challenges today’s women and girls face–and build a brighter future for everyone.  Questions or more information, contact our membership chair.

See what’s planned for the coming year in our Branch Brochure .  This is also a good resource to share with potential members!
